    I think you should take the dog for a walk.

    Don't have a dog. And don't have leashes for the cats.

    Work in a few grammar books. It should be whose, not who's. :rolleyes:

    Ed. note
    : The above conversation between two of our moderators is an example of moderator burn-out. Caused by cleaning out too many keto spam posts.

    That could be it.

    How do you tell when to use who's vs. whose?

    The keto spam is not so bad but I'm getting pretty tired of all the male-enhancement-spam. You guys ought to try to get over all that.
    But I still think that Ted needs to go down to the local dog shelter and walk some dogs. Those civil war books will wait a couple of hours.

    I'm no longer welcome at the dog shelter.

    Ted, I'm sorry but I've got to say it. It's a bad thing when you get banned from the dog shelter.

    Who's is a contraction of who is or who has. Examples: 1) Who's going to walk the dog? (who is) 2) Who's been the dumbest occupant of the White House? (who has)
    Whose is the possessive/ownership form of who. Examples: 1) Whose dog will I borrow? 2) Whose phony U Penn diploma is hanging in the Oval Office?

    I have been trying to read a book on King Stephen, but it has been rough going.

    Anyone know where I could pick up a couple of cat leashes so I can take my cats for a walk?
